lovaza starts with omega-3 fish oil that's then purified and concentrated. it's the only omega-3 medication that's fda-approved. you can't get it at a health food store. lovaza isn't right for everyone. tell your doctor if you're allergic to fish, have other medical conditions and about any medications you're taking, especially those that may increase risk of bleeding. blood tests are needed before and during treatment. in some, ldl or bad cholesterol may increase. possible side effects include burping, infection, flu-like symptoms, upset stomach, and change in sense of taste. ask your doctor about lovaza, the prescription that starts in the sea.

strange ending in minnesota. rangers with the based loaded down by two. base hit cut off behind second. the throw back at third to get michael young but he's ruled out. why? third base coach touched him, in effect helping him get back to third base. that is a tough ruling. that's the ball game. texas still leads the a's by eight games in the west. andy roddick beaud out but -- bowed out. sam crier rei enis looking to advance to the fourth round taking on nicholas amadro. cleary probably felt there was no way he would lose today. back to back grand slams with a straight set win today. that means next up is the four seed, andy murray. he falls apart after winning
the first set losing in four. women's side, venus williams is a little off today. she tugged at her skirt most of the match. even in her less than best effort it was good enough. third round pga bank open, tiger woods in trouble at 18. the rough stuff lands on the green. 69 for woods. his second straight round in the 60s. he is still 10 shots behind. jason day isn't going anywhere. apparently 66 today. he has a one shot lead. phil mickelson is lurking five shots back. >> mickelson's approach hits the flag stick, rolls back off the green. the same thing happened to
mickelson on the same hole, same place. his memory this time served him well. birdy. 67 today. if he finishes fourth or better he could take over the world's number one ranking from tiger woods. one of the raiders goals this off season was to improve the awful run defense. all the new faces will get a big test next sunday when they take on chris johnson and the tight taints. >> we will have our hands full. you turn on espn, he is in the fantasy league. we are not liking any motivation heading into the football game. it's a big challenge for us. >> richard, i have to admit. i will come clean. he was my number one pick so -- >> i'll tell you what, i don't want you to get no points in that first week. >> much more of the interview with richard see more on game
day. we will be joined by pete rider, david wright from the chronicle as we get you ready for the start of the season. jon gruden, x ray der coach, he believes the raiders have an awesome front 7. >> are you agreeing? >> we did the san diego game the other night. i think the chargers have issues. they were 13-3 last year. but if the raiders get good quarterback play from campbell or brad could sky, whoever it will be. >> these two could go on forever. >> jon gruden knows what he's talking about. >> thanks, guys. a benefit missing for six years is back home again. the grace chapel bell was stolen. where it was found this weekend and how ice discovery comes. that's it for eyewitness news at 5:30. see you in a half hour.
and a lot of people, when they get a denture, they think the best way to clean it is by brushing it with toothpaste. toothpaste contains abrasives that scratch dentures, leaving microscopic crevices where bacteria can grow, and bacteria can cause bad breath. the best way to go is to soak them in polident. only polident is proven to clean without scratching and kills 99.9% of odor-causing bacteria. i recommend using polident and soak every day. it's the right way to go.
